If you don't like grocery shopping, don't buy any junk food when you *do* shop. It takes willpower.
You'll have saved yourself from the junk calories, you won't have junk food in the house, and you won't want to go shopping to get some junk food later (unless you really want to go out just to get junk food.)
The way I eat the best and stay away from junk food is that I clean my fridge, freezers and cabinets out and throw away or give away the junk food. I restock my kitchen with healthy food and resolve to not let myself bring the enemy/junk food back into home. Out of site/out of house, out of mind!
Eating junk food is a constant battle for most people. I learned a tip from one of my old journals. If you only eat junk food on the weekends it really works. I learned it from a person who lost over 100 pounds in a year. If you limit your junk food eating to the weekends then you will lose weight. I tried it after my second child was born and lost from 225 pounds to 164 pounds.
